The University of Houston is set to sponsor a conference centered around transgender youth and medicalized gender transitions, hosted by the organization Gender Infinity.
According to the Texas Scorecard, the University of Houston is included in a partial list of sponsors alongside Equality Texas and the Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT).
University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work has previously sponsored the event, being a gold-level sponsor in 2019 alongside the grocery store chain HEB ’s Helping Here program and Legacy Community Health.
The college states that its mission is to prepare "diverse leaders in practice and research to address complex challenges and achieve sustainable social, racial, economic, and political justice, locally and globally, through exceptional education, innovative research, and meaningful community engagement."
The conference takes place over two days, with day one being held virtually for professionals seeking continuing education credits (CEU).
Sessions include Trans 101 through 301 for mental health providers, talks on "Body Affirming Surgeries" both masculizing and feminizing," and "Safe Zone Training - How to Create LGBTQIA+ Inclusive Spaces at Home, in Schools, and in the Workplace."
Day two will be held in person, set aside for gender dysphoric youth and their parents. While some sessions are open to all, others are closed sessions, with some of these sessions being set aside for transgender teenagers without their parents.
Some sessions on Day 2 include "Dressed to Pass: The Problem with Looking Non-Binary, "What’s Next for Trans Athletes," talks on hormones and puberty blockers, and inclusiveness in talking about abortions.
Gender Infinity states that the annual conference is the largest in the south, welcoming over 300 attendees to learn more about creating trans-affirming spaces and be knowledgeable about topics that affect the trans community."
The conference states that the in-person day will be held in Houston’s Museum District, including community tabling and art activities for kids, according to the organization’s Facebook page.
